Like many of you, we have been watching the situation in Ukraine unfold with horror and compassion. We are working with an organisation to act as a donation centre for much needed supplies which we will then transport to a central collection location in London before they are taken to the border in Poland.
We will be lighting the Connaught Theatre blue and yellow in solidarity with Ukraine and we will be hosting a screening of the new Ukrainian film OLGA, with all proceeds going to the Red Cross to support their aid programs. You can buy tickets to OLGA here.
We appreciate that there is a cost of living crisis here in the UK, but if you are able to donate any of the following it would be hugely appreciated. Our discussions with the charity have been hugely humbling and we are proud to be helping in our own small way.
ITEMS NEEDED ARE:
- New thermal underwear and socks
- New children’s warm clothes
- Wet wipes
- Dry food / canned food (all sealed and in date)
- Pet food – unopened
It’s important to note that these items should be new, rather than an opportunity to clear a cupboard – we are sure those items could be donated elsewhere locally to help. These donations can be accepted at the Connaught Theatre on Union Place during the following hours between Fri 11 March & Wed 23 March.
Connaught Theatre Opening Hours:
Saturday and Sunday 10am – 8.30pm
Monday to Friday 12.30pm – 8.30pm
We are hugely grateful for all donations of the necessary items listed above and hope you can support our efforts to make any small difference to the people suffering in the current crisis.
